Social Security Disability Overview
The U.S. Social Security Disability Insurance system protects all workers against loss of earnings due to disability. Social Security disability claims are different from workers’ compensation claims, in that the cause of the workers’ injury is irrelevant in a claim for Social Security disability benefits. The main issue is whether the injury prevents a person from being able to work, regardless of the cause of the injury. If you have been severely injured in a workers’ compensation case, you may be eligible for other benefits under Social Security Disability.
Filing a Social Security Disability Claim
To make a claim for Social Security Disability benefits, a disabled worker must meet certain requirements, including strict definitions relating to the severity of his or her injuries. Social Security disability requirements can be complicated and hard to understand, and sometimes claims can be denied. If a Social Security Disability applicant is denied, he or she can make an appeal. The counsel of a personal injury lawyer with experience in Social Security disability cases can greatly help with these kinds of claims.
